 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk Eggroll wrappers or ravioli
  • Wrappers
  • 1 1/2 lb Eggplant
  • 3 Cloves garlic
  • 1/4 c Soy sauce or tamari sauce
  • 1/2 c Scallions chopped coarsly
  • 1/2 ts Mustard
  • 1 ts Paprika (the hotter the
  • Better)
  • 1 ts Ginger


Slice eggplant in half lengthwise and cut off stems. Place face down on a
cookie sheet. Use non-stick spray if the sheet is not already non stick.

Bake for about 1 hour. The eggplant should give to the touch. Take the
eggplant out of the oven and allow to cool. While they are cooling mix the
rest of the ingredients in a bowl to make a marinade.

When the eggplant is cool, they should be a bit shriveled. With a spoon,
scoop Out the insides into the marinade. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.

Pour the eggplant and marinade into a food processor to puree for about 30
seconds. The result should look totally inedible. :-)

Fill a large stock pan with about 1.5 inches of water and set on the stove
to boil.

If you are using wonton wrappers or ravioli wrappers you can skip this
step. Take out two eggroll wrappers and cut in even quarters.

Place out about 8 wrapper pieces on a flat clean surface like a cutting
board. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon of the eggplant puree into the middle of
each wrapper. Dip your fingers into a bowl of water and run along two
opposite edges of a wrapper or along all four edges. Take one corner and
fold it over to the opposite corner forming a triangle. Carefully press the
wet edges together to form a seal. Place the triangular ravioli onto a rack
to dry a bit and repeat the process with the other seven wrappers.

If you put too much filling in a wrapper, it will ooze out the edge. Just
make sure you press firmly on that edge to force the filling out all the
way. You want the wrapper edges touching each other so they will form a

If you have a ravioli press, as sold at Chinese supply stores, follow the

directions given with the press.

After filling eight raviolis, turn them over on the drying rack and repeat
the process with eight more.

At this point, your water should be at a rolling boil and you can carefully
add the raviolis. First stir the water in a circular motion with a slotted
spoon. Place one ravioli on the spoon and carefully lower it into the
water. Continue stirring until the ravioli starts to float. Add another
ravioli. Don't add so many raviolis that they crowd each other in the pan.
They should not touch each other while cooking or they might cook together.

The raviolis are cooked when they float easily and are somewhat
transparent. The eggplant mixture will spread in the wrapper a bit but
should not seep out if they were sealed well.

As they reach the floating stage, carefully lift the raviolis out of the
water with the slotted spoon and move them back to the drying rack.

When the raviolis are dry again use a toothpick to connect the two opposite
corners and place on a tray of lettuce or ornamental cabbage to serve. If
you are not concerned with fat, you can lightly coat a plate with sesame or
hot pepper oil and place the raviolis directly on the oil. They can be kept
on a hot pad this way. Otherwise eat them immediately.
